Gamers' Quest – The Fat Man

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 3: Zyra.

 

A heavy hand came down onto her shoulder and spun her around.

She was face to face with a large, extraordinarily fat man in a black suit, with a red cravat concealing the fleshy folds of his neck. The Fat Man from the portrait.

‘Well, well, well,’ wheezed the man with difficulty, sounding decidedly unhealthy. ‘Lucky me for listening to a snitch’s tip-off.’

Zyra winced at the garlic breath, and went for her knives.

Despite his bulk, this guy was lightning quick. One doughy hand suddenly had her knife arm pinned to the wall and another tightly clasped around her throat. Zyra’s free hand desperately clung to the card-like key.

‘You’re so fragile,’ said the Fat Man, his triple chin waggling as he spoke, his dark eyes flashing with barely concealed excitement. ‘It would take so little effort to clench my hand into a fist and crush your pretty little throat.’

He tightened his grip, making Zyra gasp for air. A grey haze washed over her vision. Unconsciousness was seconds away.
